I did read the patent but I don't understand exactly what moom does. If a tiling window manager defines a set of inputs for defining grids and moving/resizing windows on that grid, where is the difference?

The actual patent document, with drawings, is at [1]. It describes the visual, mouse-driven grid UI Moom uses to let you draw out where windows should be placed. As far as I can tell it doesn't mention anything about hotkeys.
